man looking at thermostat and rubbing hands, coldThis is typically the time of year that homeowners throughout San Ramon are using their heaters on a daily basis, not necessarily shopping for a new system. But if your heater has reached the end of its run, your situation is different, and you’re likely in a rush to find a new heater, now! We urge you to consider your options, and not buy the first system you can find in your budget, as this can be a mistake not only in the installation, but over the years if the system’s efficiency doesn’t meet the needs of your home.

Heat pumps operate on the same principle as an air conditioner, but can also be used for heating. Keep reading to learn more about the advantages of such a system, and be sure to reach out to our team for professional San Ramon, CA heat pump services.
